8. Glenn Irwin
Glenn Irwin is the man for Episode Eight of The TT Podcast as the four time North West 200 winner joins Chris Pritchard and Steve Plater in the lead up to his debut at the world’s ultimate road race.
Glenn talks about the A* revision he’s done as he prepares for his first year around the TT Mountain Course, how having John McGuinness as a teammate will help his learning process, and what he expects it to be like when getting that tap on the shoulder for the first time.
The British Superbike star also takes the opportunity to push Steve for some racing tips and discusses an unusual first go round the Course during a parade lap in 2019.
Hailing from what he describes as a hugely competitive family, the Honda rider gives a glimpse into growing up with a successful rider for a father, and how the attitude instilled in him has helped shape his recovery from a big 2017 crash at Knockhill that continues to affect him.
